RSC Celebrate 175th Anniversary

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) has marked its 175th anniversary with a landmark campaign: 175 Faces of Chemistry.

Over the 175 weeks leading up to the 175th anniversary of the organisation on 23 February 2016, the RSC has been showcasing the wonderful diversity of its community in the form of 175 individual and inspirational stories.

Each story features someone involved in the chemical sciences who represents diversity in the broadest sense; someone who is a role model, champion and ambassador for an inclusive culture and diverse future generation of chemists.

175 Faces of Chemistry was launched in October 2012, by Professor Lesley Yellowlees, the RSC’s first female president and a passionate campaigner for inclusion and diversity:

"I am delighted to see the launch of the 175 Faces of Chemistry initiative. During my presidency at the Royal Society of Chemistry I was keen to promote equality and diversity issues and this project makes an important contribution towards achieving this goal."

Congratulations on a brilliant campaign to the RSC- happy anniversary!
